Report: First iPhone Worm Is "Half Warning, Half Prank"

There's a first time for everything, and over the weekend the iPhone got an unwelcome first: an "in the wild" worm, which (luckily for most of us) can only crawl its way into jailbroken iPhones. But before you panic, know that the "ikee" worm appears to be more of a prank--and a warning--than a real threat. reports that the worm, dubbed "ikee," was found nesting in jailbroken iPhones in Australia by security research firms Sophos and F-Secure. (A "jailbroken" iPhone that's been unlocked or otherwise hacked; if you don't know what a jailbroken iPhone is, you probably don't have one, so relax.)
